Sid Meier's Railroads!
"The real fun comes in planning the best routes and laying track in the most efficient manner that also just might happen to mess your competitor up a bit." - IGN.com
"But as complex and rewarding as building a railroad empire can be, it rarely feels daunting or tedious, which is perhaps the best thing that can be said for a game of this type." - Gamespot.com
Sid Meier's Railroads! marks the return of the watershed title in simulation/strategy gaming that launched the popular "tycoon" genre, and inspired a new generation of games. Sid Meier's Railroads! comes home to its original creator, the legendary Sid Meier, who, together with his team at Firaxis Games, will take this game to a whole new level of fun!
The greatest railroad building game of all time is back in a vibrant 3D world delivering exciting multiplayer options, streamlined interface and unmatched gameplay, that's easy to learn yet challenging to master. Creators of the world's best strategy game, Civilization IV, Sid Meier and Firaxis Games put you in charge of building the greatest rail empire in the nation - managing trains, cargo and your bottom line - while engaging in all-out corporate warfare against rival tycoons, slick entrepreneurs, and robber barons!

Like all locomotive genre games, you should know what to expect here. Visuals are okay, soundtrack is okay, a LOT is just okay. Nothing really stands out to the average fan or gamer. It's very bearable. Game is almost very polished. I couldn't really notice any bugs too. But visuals do not feel as polished as they should be. They're not up to today's standards and they look lacking compared to new locomotive titles being released. Anyway, gameplay is very simple and fun. It's just what you expect from a Sid Meier Game. Managing and controlling your own little "railroad empire" against others. If you've played any Sid Meier games..know your getting your money's worth.
Almost as good as Railworks 2!!Xbomborz | July 26, 2011 | See all Xbomborz's reviews »
This game is almost like an "original" version of Railworks 2, with some minor bugs and differences in gameplay. Filled with hundreds of miles of track, scenic routes, detailed and interesting trains and cars, and fun design and a high production value, Sid Meier's Railroads! was and is a leap from the technology and presentation of past simulators. Overall, if you love playing with model trains and trains simulators, this game is for you!
